S24B300EL Monitor - 2 questions

by Steve Mc / March 26, 2013 12:38 AM PDT

1. I often have to view the monitor while standing, whereas my eyes are appx. 1.5 feet above the top of the monitor. As soon as I start to stand, the display starts washing out, and is very washed out from that height. Is there any setting which will correct this ?

2. I use my photos as screensavers, but when they display as a screensaver photo or a desktop photo, they do not fill the screen, even with the stretch setting, which worked fine on my original monitor. Any suggestions to get the pix to fit the entire monitor ?

Windows XP System.

1. Sounds like what LCD displays do.

I'll stop here and note that CRT, Plasma and OLED displays have a much wider viewing angle.

2. That issue was noted on some HP PCs. It was also noted with some image types. I know this is asking a lot and I can understand why such details are omitted but all I can offer here is that is a known issue. In one case fixable and the second case you change the image in a specific way.

Sorry that I can't give you more detail about the second issue or an answer but something's not there.
If you want to do more research on the image resize on your own, try this on google.
